Imagine if Wal-Mart, the worlds biggest retailer sets up operations in India at prime locations in the 35 large cities and towns that house more than 1 million people . The supermarket will typically sell everything, from ic gadgets, at extremely low prices that will most likely undercut those in nearby local stores selling similar goods. WalMart would be more likely to source its raw materials from abroad, and procure goods like vegetables and fruits directly from farmers at preordained quantities and specifications.in the long run it could buy cheaper and sell at high price -Comment
We have D Mart in our area and frankly speaking we do not like buying from the kinara store any more.
D mart offers a better shopping experience - the weights are always correct , you get a proper bill ,get better quality and at ideal price.
As far as back end infrastructure is concerned , if our governments have let us down for past 60 years, it is better that the foreigners come in and at least establish some infrastructure, which would prevent wastages , if at all they would not benefit anyone .
Even today the farmers are at the mercy of middlemen and final consumers are at the mercy of the kirana stores .
